- Gay Perry: Look up "idiot" in the dictionary. You know what you'll find?
- Harry: A picture of me?
- Gay Perry: No. The definition of the word "idiot," which you fucking are.
- Dan: Oh yeah, we watched a clip of Casablanca in film studies today. Goddamn everything about that movie is perfect.
- Jackson: no cumshot
- Dan: You're the worst <3
- Jackson: sry it's just the way i feel
- Jackson: I'd just be a much bigger casablanca enthusiast if there were a scene wherein humphrey bogart launches arcing ropes of jism
- Dan: i mean as satisfying as watching Humphrey Bogart blow a load on Ingred Bergman/Peter Lorre's face would be I don' think it suffers for the lack.
- Jackson: you and i will just have to agree to disagree i guess
the obvious pun
Why oh why can’t you just leave good things alone? It was bad enough when you tried to make a Ferris Bueller television show, but this is so much worse. A Ferris Bueller remake? Was the first one not good enough? Doesn’t it stand the test of time? Why do you always have to f**k with a good thing? Apparently you have decided that a new generation needs to have their own version of Ferris Bueller and I cannot think of a worse idea.
Matthew Broderick spoke to Cinematical about the rumors that a new Ferris movie was in the works and this is what he had to say. “(A remake) would be fine. I would be perfectly happy for somebody to do that. I probably wouldn’t enjoy (having a role in the film). I would rather leave what we did as our thing.”
Despite the fact that Matthew seems ok with it, I think the rest of the world should have a vote and I say not only no, but hell no. It is timeless.
Do not mess with Ferris.

List for a Decade: Meaghan
“SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK: Now that was a damn good movie. I remember standing in line in the bathroom afterward, and everybody was just staring blankly into their own mortality, or else the gleam of bathroom tiles, and we all just wanted to die, all of us. Then me and Halle went and got falafel and talked about how great it was, basically by just saying, Man, that was great over and over because we were so dumbfounded.”
oh god that movie

I saw Avatar last night.
- I was rather disappointed by the movie in a story telling sense. But I knew I was going to be disappointed. It’s a shame thats not the reason I, or other people really go to see any movie.
- It was very pretty. In the sense that a high fashion show is pretty. It’s not pretty in the way a film like Koyaanisqatsi is pretty.
- The digital IMAX and 3D format. I sat in a good place to see the screen, down at the front the DPI is dreadfully low. It would have ruined the movie for me. 3D adds the right amount of depth to a movie. Its fairly immersive and giving the director another dimension of control this 3D format is a step in the director. Having made the switch to watching 1080p movies at home on a big tv, you get a level of clarity that makes it a much stronger substitute good for seeing it in theaters. 3D is something that has still not yet come to home, and digital IMAX (when viewed properly) gives an experience not yet re-creatable at home.
- Why does he have to make such long ass movies? Jesus Christ my eyes were burning at the end of it. This isn’t an artistic high of James Cameron (Alien) but its a decent movie. Visually stunning.
(1. I could see the plot arc to completion inside the first twenty mnutes, but I didn’t really care. Maybe I just get off on eye candy to such an extent that it didn’t matter that much to me. I also found the level of anthropological detail thrilling, so perhaps that helped. In the plot’s defense, though, although it was predictable, it wasn’t dull.
2. Shocking, deep-intake-of-breath pretty.
3. I didn’t see it in IMAX, so I can’t comment there. However, it’s the first 3D film I’ve seen that really took advantage of the format. Admittedly, I tend to avoid 3D like the plague; I think it’s gimmicky, and I only went to this one because I bought tickets to a 3D showing by accident. That said, goddamn were some of those vistas incredible. And feeling like I was six inches from Neytiri’s arrow near the beginning was actually a bit intimidating.
4. The thing that was most evident to me, coming out of the film, was not the heavy-handed eco-message or the railing against colonialism or the thinly-veiled Iraq war metaphors. It was Cameron’s utter dedication to storytelling, even if that story is not, in and of itself, that good. I’m sure a film like this could benefit from a Quentin Tarantino writing dialogue. But given the effort and time expended to make this thing, it’s obvious that Cameron and his lot wanted to tell a story in the biggest, most powerful way possible. I didn’t feel there was a wasted scene in the film, which makes the length forgivable. I think they suceeded.)
